Las Vegas, Nev. – U.S. Rep. Susie Lee (Nev.-03) hosted a Facebook Live with Nevada State Treasurer Zach Conine to discuss the Pandemic Emergency Technical Support (PETS) Grant Program, a new COVID-19 pandemic grant program, funded by the CARES Act, for Nevada small businesses, non-profit organizations, and cultural institutions. 

“I am happy that the CARES Act is at work again, providing relief for Nevadans who have been struggling because of the pandemic,” said Rep. Lee. “This new PETS Grant Program, providing grants of up to $10,000 to small businesses and nonprofits, will be a lifeline to many Nevadans as they struggle to keep their doors open. Thank you to Treasurer Conine for working with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development to provide relief to our small businesses, nonprofits, and cultural institutions. My top priority right now is economic relief for Nevadans. We need to remember this pandemic is not over, and Nevadans need help to weather the storm. I will continue to work day and night to support Nevada’s workers, small businesses, and organizations.” 

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, our office has been focused on making sure that small businesses are protected and that our economic recovery is as quick as possible,” said Nevada Treasurer Zach Conine. “This program will go a long way to keep Nevadans employed, small businesses open, and our State moving in the right direction.” 

BACKGROUND: The application period for the PETS Grant Program is Monday, Oct. 19th through Monday, Nov. 2nd. Click here to learn more about the PETS Grant Program.
